Facts that make you go “hmm”

1. When a sub-group of faculty were asked whether they thought cheating was a problem in UCSD classes: 89% (65) agreed that cheating is a problem (68.5% agree, 20.5% strongly agree) 2. When asked if they thought academic integrity is sufficiently addressed in class and/or in syllabi: 58.8% agreed. However, after our preliminary syllabi research, we have to disagree! We can probably chalk this up to conflicting definitions of “sufficiently”. 3. When asked if they thought faculty could play a bigger role in promoting academic integrity on campus: 82.5% (61) agreed that faculty should play a bigger role (51.4% agree, 31.1% strongly agree). So, the question is—how do we get more faculty to “AIM higher?”
